this is a directless path that president obama and others are planning for. they will say this healthcare is deficit neutral. isn't it like a trillion dollars? so we're spending a trillion dollars? how is that deficit neutral? they have to raise the money. they have to find that money someplace. the health of our country is not good. we can't afford more massive government programs. our dollar will eventually go away if we continue down this path, and when it collapses, who is going to save us? because americans, america is too big to fail, you know? people will argue that another stimulus, another adrenaline shot is the answer. hey, that's why our g.d.p. was up because of the stimulus. those stimulus shots are as bogus as the adrenaline shots in the movies. do you remember this one from "mission impossible 3"? >> thank you. glenn: those add dwren lynn -- those adrenaline shots will shock the system and work for a minute but we know what happens when the government tries to shoot an injection into the heart. it fails. the real answer and the answer that nobody in washington wants to give you is you,

's a vikt fi for president obama's top domestic priority. the house of representatives has approved a health care reform plan but it was a close call. the measure passed with only two votes to spare, and one of them came from a republican. the fight over health care reform now moved to the senate. so, what's in the health care bill that the house passed? well, perhaps the most controversial part of the bill that it does contain the so-called public option. the government would sell insurance to those who can't find it elsewhere. the congressional budget office predicts those premiums would be more expensive than insurance from private companies, but many people would be eligible for government subsidies to help pay for that coverage. other provisions of the bill would ban insurers from denying coverage to people just because of pre-existing conditions. the house bill also contains strict bans on using federal money to pay for abortions. congressman john dingle, a longtime proponent of national health insurance, projects that the bill will extend health care coverage to 96% of americans. >>>
